The one ontop in my configeration is about 40c, and the one on the bottom is about 57c, lol. Probably because the airflow in that part of the case just sucks.. lol

or if your drive is SMART compatible you can use MBM to see

How to do it

open te MBM Settings

on the General tab, drag the bar down so that you can check the "scan for IDE hard drives with temp sensors" check it (or check SCSI if its applicable)

then reboot your system

open up MBM settings again

go to the Temp's tab

select a MBM5 Sensor thats not being used

then in the next drop down select your HDD

I've heard there have been numerous studies that show lower temperature prolongs hard drive life. I've never seen one of these studies though. It makes sense though when you consider the mechanics of a hard drive.

If you're above 50C, find a way to cool that drive down or you're really pushing it. Below that the cooler the better, although anywhere below 35C is very good.
